USWO: Quiet happiness pushes Park to the top

It’s difficult to get to know Inbee Park. Not because she’s unpleasant but simply because she’s not one to divulge much information without significant prodding. Even with her exceptional run this last year, she’s still somewhat of an unknown.

Tease photo

Lewis is the everywoman of the U.S. Women's Open

Stacy Lewis still drives the same Lexus IS that she bought after a third in the 2008 U.S. Women's Open. Five years and plenty of success later, Lewis hasn't changed her economical ways.
